Supply and demand can be a complicated concept for some students, and this resource makes the topic interesting and accessible. Economics classes may enjoy using case studies of Hula Hoops and Silly Bandz to learn about this concept. They first watch a clip about the Hula-Hoop demand in the 1950s-60s, and then discuss questions about supply and demand. Next, the class watches a clip about the makers of Silly Bandz and read relevant news stories. Applying what they learn from the Hula-Hoop segment, they answer questions about Silly Bandz' price point. All of the necessary links are included, as is a final assessment.
Kids consider the economic concepts of goods, services, supply, and demand by assessing the impact toy fads have on consumer behavior. They watch a clip from the film Hudsucker Proxy, discuss Hula-Hoops and Silly Bandz, then use those toy fads as case studies for equilibrium price, and supply and demand.
Happy Meals® may have been popular because of the coveted prize that came with the fries. Mathematicians analyze a fictitious BurgerRama campaigning to sell cartoon-character dolls. They graph sales on a chart. In doing so, they examine linear equations for supply and demand. Links to three associated worksheets and a detailed lesson plan are embedded into this website.
In this recognizing supply and demand activity, students read how business owners make decisions, identify vocabulary words supply, demand, profit, and expenses, and observe a table showing how price affects demand to answer questions. Students solve two consumer math problems.
In this supply and demand worksheet, learners read about supply and demand and the impact these can have on a new business. They then answer the 9 questions in the packet. The answers are at the end of the packet.
Research supply and demand with your young economists. In this lesson, learners build knowledge on how to earn, spend, and save money through a role-play activity. They practice "buying" things with play money.

Students learn that the price of an item is defined by its supply and demand. In this lesson students graph the relationship between demand and supply of various products, students also consider hidden costs.
Students explain factors that affect supply and demand, find linear equations for given set of supply and demand data, and find the equilibrium point for a system of supply and demand equations. They translate between table, graph and equation repres

Students explore economic concepts. In this supply and demand lesson, students learn about supply and demand through the exploration of the California Gold Rush. Students use online activities to transport back to the time of the gold rush and read factual examples of supply and demand at work. Students write a paragraph on a recent fad that resulted in a shortage of that item.
Fourth graders explore the concept of economic goods and bads, and scarce items as it relates to the factors that affect our economy. In this supply and demand lesson, 4th graders are introduced to vocabulary that pertains to supply and demand. Students then discuss the causes that make prices change and work in groups to answer specific questions on a worksheet.
In this lesson, you will first examine the factors that change supply and demand for products. You will see how changes in supply and demand affect prices and quantities sold. Then you will analyze actual news stories to determine how changes in supply an
